But we have this treasure in earthen vessels to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us (2 Cor 4:7)
The Lord wants us to hold dearly in our hearts the things that He whispers to us, the revelations He gives, the insights and understandings – keep them treasured and secretly held in our hearts – as precious oil.
But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart (Luke 2:19)
Don’t be too quick to give them away – let them be worked into us first…. let them become us….then they are given by God to others through our lives – His Life in us, not our words.
Our own words can’t carry the precious oil, only an empty vessel can carry the Oil.
